Research Week showcases the exciting research and creative work that undergraduates are pursuing every day at UT. There are a number of ways students can get involved.

Present Your Work During Research Week 2021

Share your research or creative work with others. By presenting at a poster session, symposium, or exhibit, you can receive feedback on your work and gain an impressive credential for applying to graduate schools or jobs. Check with your academic advisor or your faculty mentor to see if there are opportunities to present your work at an event hosted by your college or department. Deadlines for college and departmental events vary, and you should contact your academic advisor for details.

You may also wish to participate in the poster session or exhibition of student creative work at the Longhorn Research Poster Session on April 14-15, 2021. Submissions for the virtual Longhorn Research Poster Session are now open. The deadline to submit a poster is Wednesday, March 31, at 11:59 p.m. CT.


This year, The Longhorn Research Poster Session will be virtual.

This year, students can compete for $6,000 in awards recognizing UT’s top student research posters. $2,000, $1,000, and $500 awards will be presented to the top posters nominated by their colleges, as well as to select a $500 poster design award winner from all posters. During each of the event’s two poster sessions, attendees can cast a ballot for their favorite poster to win a $1000 audience choice award.

Students who plan to present a research poster at the Longhorn Research Poster Session must attend a poster design workshop through the Office of Undergraduate Research or through their department or program. Register for a poster workshop offered by the Office of Undergraduate Research.
